A luxury home bought for £1.7m in Devon just two years ago is now in danger of slipping into the sea.

Large parts of the garden have disappeared after the cliff face at Dawlish in south Devon gave way.

Teignbridge Council said it sanctioned building at the site after it was shown the property would be built on solid rock.

But the authority said the owners were given "clear advice" about natural erosion and the stability of the cliff.
